While this season of Teen Mom OG is coming to a close, with the final reunion episode airing this coming Monday, star Amber Portwood is speaking out to US Weekly about trying to gain custody of her daughter with Gary Shirley.
Amber Portwood Custody Feels Helpless
In regards to her having signed over custody to Shirley before she went to prison, Portwood revealed that, “Gary has full control over me. I feel helpless.”
“I’ve proven I can be trusted,” Portwood continued. “I shouldn’t have to keep paying for what I did in my past.”
Portwood informed the magazine that she ideally would like 50/50 custody of her daughter that she shares with Shirley.
While it remains to be seen if this will happen, we are really pulling for Portwood and were thrilled to see how far she’s come this season, including planning to go to college.
